However, I know that Corn Syrup is a main ingredient in store bought chocolate syrup and that stuff is just NOT good for you! Look it up. :)
So, here is a recipe that I use for chocolate Syrup. It is versatile in that if you make it with water, it is more like the store bought kind, if made with 1/2 and 1/2 it turns out like fudge topping for ice cream.
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 cup water OR milk OR 1/2 n' 1/2
1 tsp vanilla
Combine cocoa, sugar and salt in a saucepan; stir with whisk. Whisk in water (or milk), and mix until smooth. Bring this mixture to a boil, and allow it to boil for 1 min. 30 sec., stirring constantly - don't let it boil over the top. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temp. Stir in Vanilla.
Variations and Tips:
- I like to use Sucanet instead of sugar, but this will give it a slightly "molasses" flavor, sometimes I use 1/2 sucanet and 1/2 sugar
- Sometimes I will add 1 tsp cinnoman to the dry ingredients
- The longer you let it boil, the thicker and/or harder it becomes, so be careful
- I have found the best consistency comes with 3/4 cup skim milk and 1/4 cup water
Store in fridge. :)
